Lewis and Clark Signs Transfer Agreement with Webster University for Nursing Degree Program

On Wednesday, April 15, Lewis and Clark Community College President  Dale Chapman signed a dual admission and transfer agreement with Webster University President Beth Stroble.

This agreement is to help L&C students in the Associate Degree Nursing program (ADN) complete their Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program (BSN) with Webster University, in an easier and more economical way.

“[This agreement] is important to our students for the future,” Dean of Health Sciences Donna Meyer said in her speech before the agreement was signed.

L&C has set the trend with this agreement, according to Webster University officials.

“This is the first agreement we’ve made,” Ciera Field, admissions representative for Webster University, said. “We currently are in the works with other colleges, including SWIC.”

 

Students who participate in L&C’s ADN program will have their application fees at Webster University waived. Also, students will be given the opportunity to complete dual work at Webster and L&C simultaneously, giving students the ability to work on both their ADN and BSN. This will allow students to not only achieve their degree in a much shorter time, but do so in a more financially conservative manner.

“This is about you [the students], especially after the changes in healthcare,” Jenny Broeder, chair of nursing at Webster University, said.

This agreement is allowing the option of more doors to open to the students of the L&C Nursing Program:

“This is an incredible opportunity. I can’t even describe how excited I am about this,” Stephanie Johnson, student trustee at L&C, said.
